Relocation – Moving Away to Start a New Life

People are always on the go. Across the world, people pick up stakes and relocate about once every five years. These moves are often job-related.

Those whose companies have transferred their positions to a distant city may have no other choice. Others will relocate voluntarily in search of a better situation.

Often, though, the reason for moving is purely emotional. Some are attempting to come to grips with divorce or the death of a loved one. In this type of situation, moving away from painful memories will frequently provide sufferers with the space they need to heal.

Others who have undergone abuse or victimization may be physically afraid to remain in a place where they no longer feel safe. Regardless of the provocation, the experience of life in a new location can facilitate a break from the past.

Until recently, many referred to such moves as lifestyle changes. Today, however, those who are aware of its known benefits call it by a more appropriate name: relocation therapy. In this view, moving away has nothing to do with running away from problems. It is, instead, more of a solution that allows a person to close the door on a painful period and embark on a new life adventure.

Many people hesitate to make such a move, questioning whether it could possibly make a difference. If that’s what you’ve been telling yourself, consider the possibilities:

– Relocation therapy can put you back in charge of your destiny. The feeling of power that comes from taking control of your life can be an invaluable aid to mental health.

– Relocation therapy can provide a sense of redemption. A person who feels responsible for a failed relationship or other life situation can suffer a serious loss of self-esteem. Relocation affords a second chance to achieve success and banish the cycle of failure.

– Relocation therapy can leave you with a much-needed sense of relief. It won’t change the past, but it can renew your enthusiasm, making you see that life is worth living after all.

“When the time for reincarnation comes, and the presence of the Permanent Atom renders possible the fertilisation of the ovum from which the new body is to grow, its keynote sounds out, and
is one of the forces which guide the ethereal builder to choose
the material suitable for his work, for he can use none that cannot
be to some extent attuned to the permanent atom. But it is only
one of the forces; the karma of past lives, mental, emotional, and
in relation to others, demands materials capable of the most varied expressions;
out of that karma the Lords of Karma have chosen
such as is congruous, and this congruous mass of karma determines
the material group, overriding the permanent atom, and out of that
group are chosen by the ethereal builder such materials as can
vibrate in harmony with the permanent atom, or in discords not
disruptive in their violence.
According to this temperament will be the time of the birth of the body; it must be born
into the world at a time when the physical planetary influences are
suitable, and it thus is born under its astrological ‘star.’ It is not
the star that imposes the temperament, but the temperament that
fixes the epoch of birth under that star. Herein lies the explanation
of the correspondences between Star-Angels and characters, and the
usefulness for educational purposes of a skilfully and carefully drawn
horoscope as a guide to the personal temperament of a child.” Annie Besant, A Study in Consciousness.
